  • 3 cups Raw rice soaked
  • 1 cup Soaked white thin Aval Aval can be replaced with cooked rice also
  • 1 1/2 cup Coconut scraped
  • 1 tsp Yeast
  • Salt As reqd


  • For preparing appam, first grind the soaked rice and soaked aval with required water in a wet grinder/mixie.
  • When they are ground well, add scraped coconut, salt, some more water into this mix and grind it further for another 5 minutes to make paste in the form of dosa mix.3) When this mix is ready, change it into another vessel. Take one tea-spoon yeast and dissolve it in some hot water and add this yeast water into the already prepared mix.
  • Keep this mix for about 5-6 hrs in the vessel(if we keep the mix for about 5-6 hrs, the appam will be more smooth and tasty).5)When you want to make appam, add salt to taste into this mix and heat the appachatti(non stick one is preferred). Apply some oil with a clean cloth piece and then put one big spoon of the already prepared mix and spread it well. Let it cook well as we prepare dosa. The appam is ready and can be consumed with vegetable or egg curry.
